The American owner of brands including Vans, The North Face and Supreme has appointed Nina Flood to the role of president of its global packs business, which brings together the Eastpak, JanSport and Kipling labels.
The US label, owned by VF Corp. since the end of 2020, is adopting a drop model for product launches, one that, according to its management, makes it vulnerable to production and transportation issues.
The parent company of Vans and The North Face has released its fourth annual sustainability and responsibility report, detailing its goal to achieve zero waste across all its distribution centers by the end of the year.
Cultural, retail and skate destination House of Vans London is back. Well, almost. Having been in enforced pandemic-induced hibernation for the past 15 months, the centre near Waterloo Station reopens on 4 November.
